Chicago (AP) A published report says uniforms belonging to transportation security administration officers were left out in the open at a checkpoint at Chicago's O'hare airport last month.

So were sensitive security information and a cashbox.

The report in the Chicago Sun-Times says no security was breached, but an aviation security expert says uniforms could be stolen and used by people trying to get through security without being checked.

A TSA spokesman says someone in a TSA uniform couldn't get into a secure area without the proper identification, but a former inspector general of the department of transportation says TSA officers in uniform are routinely “waved through” some security
checkpoints.
